Council advises “that works have commenced for the upgrade of the treatment of the bore water for the public toilets at William Fraser Reserve, Omaha Beach.
This work involves the construction of a new shed on a concrete pad for the plant room and installing treatment equipment to address the high alkaline, iron and salts content in the bore water. Equipment to be installed includes:
- A backwash pre-filter for iron and sediment reduction
- Ion exchange softening system
- New booster pump and backwash pump and controller
- UV disinfection unit
The plant room shed is of a size to allow Healthy Water to install additional plant at a later stage to treat the bore water to a potable standard as the bore has been identified for a ‘ New Welfare Water Site’ for the supply of potable water during severe drought conditions for the Omaha area. The existing water tank is being cleaned out as part of the works and a more secure locking system fitted.
Note: the upgrade of the water bore is part of the larger William Fraser Reserve Toilet Renewal project.
Work commenced 18th May 2021 and be completed by the end of June 2021.
If you have any questions about this project, please call or email using the details provided.
